Roadkill is important too
It's not the nicest topic to cover, but it is true that information about the number of echidna roadkill is very important. Being hit by cars is a leading cause of death for these little guys. You can easily let us know if you see this by submitting photos through the app or BioCollect and when it asks for the 'State of the animal' select 'dead'. As it is coming to the end of breeding season, many females will be pregnant or be carrying puggles (baby echidnas), so if you do find any deceased echidnas please check for pouches and young, but please be careful with busy roads. If in Adelaide feel free to contact us and we may be able to collect the echidna, as tissue is always valuable for our research.
